Remain in Him

John 15:4 “Remain in me, and I will remain in you. A branch cannot produce fruit by itself but must remain in the vine. In the same way, you cannot produce fruit alone but must remain in me.”

The branch on a vine does not worry, nor work hard, or rush here to seek for sunshine or to find rain. It rests on the vine. It’s almost like it doesn’t have a care in this world. However, at the right time, at the right moment and in the right way, you’ll see the right fruit found on it.

And so like the branch without a care, lets remain worry free and not work hard or rush here or their with a care in the world. Rather, lets remain steady on God’s vine secure in the Lord Jesus

school-tipsHere are tips for your child’s first day of school… Gathered from several sources including the experience of six kids, who made it through school:

1. Help your child be familiar with what to expect – classroom, teacher, etc.
2. Talk about positive aspects – help your child look forward with excitement, and take away the “unknown.”
3. Be prepared ahead of time – lay out clothes, backpack, and breakfast. *Don’t have a rushed morning.
4. Know what they’re learning, and help them apply it to their world. Show them that learning is for everyone (including you) for all of life.
5. Get involved – attend open houses and know the calendar.
